Lebanese army warns Palestinian refugees

The Lebanese army has warned that it will respond as it sees fit to any aggression from inside Palestinian refugee camps.

The warning came just hours after grenades were thrown at an army post outside the Ain el-Hilweh camp in south Lebanon, in what police said was the third such incident in the past two months. There were no reported injuries.

The army said that it would hold all factions inside the camps responsible for any such attack.

Part of the Ain el-Hilweh camp - which is the largest in Lebanon - is under the control of the Islamic militant group Asbat al-Ansar.

Washington has listed the group among organizations to have their financial assets frozen in the wake of the 11 September attacks on the United States.
